Biographical / Historical

Gentleman banker Richard Hoe Lawrence (1858–1936) pursued his antiquarian interests through active participation in the Grolier Club and in the Society of Iconophiles, which published prints illustrating Manhattan's iconography. Lawrence was also an early member of the Society of Amateur Photographers of New York. He produced numerous lantern slides and won a silver prize for hand camera work at the same Society show at which Robert Bracklow and Alfred Stieglitz also won awards.
